I posted one of my basketball shirts from last season on Instagram that I used a knockout text to do, and a few people asked me how I did it. So I decided that I was going to do a Knockout Method For Cricut Tutorial. It’s actually pretty easy.
I used heat transfer vinyl for this design and a basketball character sliced out in Cricut design space to accent the word. But this would also work with adhesive vinyl and transfer tape.
I love the look of a big bold word and glitter font. And having a Cricut Explore or Cricut maker and heat press makes dreaming up a design and executing it a breeze.
You can also do this in Adobe Illustrator, basically the same way, if you are an SVG file designer.
You can use the knockout method for Cricut using first names, last names, a cursive font paired with a more bold font. There are a few types of popular knockout design techniques you can knock out both images and texts. Use a thick text and knock out a smaller font or you can even knock out different designs within the same design.

Cricut knockout or the lockout method, (this can also be done in Photoshop and Illustrator) is kind of a layered text graphic. You can take 2 images, image and text, or Cricut offset to make a trendy knockout effect.
So, the easiest way to achieve the knockout method for Cricut is to follow the steps below. I tend to get the best effect with a really bold style text for the main word. And something that has some line detail for the second layer.
The knockout method is 1 of the best Cricut hacks and best Design Space tips out there.
